Fear of Life

Our masterprogramme focuses on researching, reflecting and aiming to develop artistic methods applying them in urban contexts or contexts underlying developments of urbanization. The crucial question would be: Does it rely now more than ever on the arts or artistic methods to create prospects, to freely counter-act strong tendencies and realities when parts of our societies discount their future, explode in resignation?

Fear respectively the creation of anxieties has become a much too powerful instrument of political persuasion. Solidaric processes are undermined if not destroyed, future is discounted: if circumstances do obviously not improve at least they should not get worse anymore.

How do notions of innovation come into play in an atmosphere of re-bordering Europe?

How could artists, architects, urbanists, how should intellectuals act now? And from where? Should they change the contexts of their work? Should they start to focus already on much younger generations? Or should they establish safe spaces inside institutions?

Big questions and maybe the answers could be found in distinct if not even pungent words, in highly precise and detailed actions, in repeated societal acupunctures in both virtual and analogue spaces?
